    The benchmark BSE-500 Sensex fell significantly today but made for early losses late in trade. The huge fall was on the back of Infosys' Vishal Sikka's exit from the company as the MD and CEO, which saw the company's scrip cracking by as much as 11%. Nonetheless, at the same time, rival company TCS made gains to the tune of 2.5%. On the other hand Nifty tested the 9800 level.
